Goal

You were trying to setup a global data service for your primary and ADG physical standby 19c databases.

You did the following to create the GDS configuration.

add gsm -gsm gsm1 -listener <port#> -catalog <catalog db host>:1521:GDSCAT
start gsm -gsm gsm1
add gdspool -gdspool reporting

add database -connect <primary cdb host>:1521/<primary cdb service>.world -gdspool reporting
add database -connect <standby cdb host>:1521/<standby cdb service>.world -gdspool reporting

You can add this service:

add service -gdspool reporting -service rpt_svc -preferred_all

But after starting that service and connecting to it that connects to the container DB. You want the service to connect to the standby PDB. So you tried adding -pdbname option as below:

GDSCTL> add service -gdspool reporting -service pdb_rpt -preferred_all -pdbname <standby pdb db_unique_name>
